As a volunteer of from this non profit for the past 5 years I can safely say the woman with the negative review above (at least in the profile pic) has never set foot in this building or the previous one. There are plenty of at-risk youth that receive help, meals, hygene supplies, showers and clothing they would otherwise go without. There is a homelessness and drug epidemic in this city and to make some blanketed statement that this non-profit is contributing to petty crime or drugs is just ignorant. Do some real research or come in for yourself before you simply write it off.

This organization started as a place to help teenagers; whom have now grown up and so the agency has evolved to continue to help these young people who are now parents themselves. The Answer For Youth (TAFY) serves dinner 4 days a week and offers a food bank, clothing bank, laundry & shower facilities and helps with a variety of individual needs.

Unfortunately they have lost their way in our community. It started out as a place for young people to get support, a hand up and a meal or clothing. There are many other places for adults to get this help, but this was the first for youth, started as a safe place for only youth. It is now a hang out for older drug addicts to hook up. Young people don't even go there any more! It is in a residential neighborhood that is now plagued with property crimes. The people involved started this with the best intentions, but it has turned into a nightmare for law enforcement and neighbors. Please do not support this charity until they go back to their original intention of helping only young people.
